The nicest man on the planet, Mr. Tom Hanks, stepped into the sci-fi flecked world of The Circle earlier this year with pretty disastrous results. Now Variety are reporting that he is to have another crack at the genre with Bios.
Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik is attached to direct the story of a robot that lives on a post-apocalyptic earth. Built to protect the life of his dying creator’s beloved dog, it learns about love, friendship, and the meaning of human life. Hanks will play the ailing creator.
Produced by Robert Zemeckis and Kevin Misher, Sapochnick, who lensed the Emmy Award winning ‘Battle of the Bastards’ episode of Game of Thrones, will work from a screenplay written by Craig Luck and Ivor Powell.
Tom Hanks can be seen next in Steven Spielberg’s The Post, with production set to get underway on Bios sometime in early 2018.
